The following components are used to inform the ACICIS CADPP Academic Program Officer’s ‘Student Outcome Evaluation’ report. Students are required to satisfactorily complete all components in order to achieve an overall grade of ‘Satisfactory’ for the program:
|1||Indonesian Language Classes||6-17 January||10%||Undertaken at the Indonesian partner university – assessments administered by the partner university Language Centre through weekly assignments and written tests.|
|2||Seminars and Fieldtrips||6-17 January||10%||Attendance at, and participation in, all seminars and fieldtrips organised by ACICIS is required. Evidence of familiarity with set readings will be assessed through seminar participation.|

Indonesian Language Classes (40 hours)
Students are required to attend two weeks of intensive classes in language and culture at an ACICIS Indonesian partner university in order to develop language skills that will help them operate more effectively in their practicum placements and in the wider Indonesian community. Students sit a placement test during orientation and are placed in Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced Indonesian language classes at the Indonesian partner university Language Teaching Centre based on their placement test results. Language classes are four hours in duration each day from Monday to Friday for the first two weeks of the program. Students are assessed on four macro skills areas: Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing. Students sit a final language exam and are awarded a numerical mark for this assessment component. To be awarded an overall ‘Satisfactory’ grade for the CADPP, participants must achieve a mark of at least 60% for this component.
Seminar Series and Fieldtrips (30 hours)
The Seminar Series and Fieldtrip component of the CADPP consists of seven seminars and two fieldtrips. Students must attend and participate actively in a minimum of 80% all scheduled seminars and fieldtrips. Prior to each seminar or fieldtrip, students are required to complete a number of set readings. Students must demonstrate adequate preparation through informed contributions to discussions and activities in order to pass this component. Lively discussion groups and Q&A sessions will be a key aspect of these sessions. Please see Appendix I for more detail about this component of the program.
Practicum Placement (160 hours)
Students undertake a supervised practicum placement at a participating Host Organisation. Required tasks will vary depending on the Host Organisation. Without good reason and the permission of their Host Organisation mentor, students must attend their placement during all contracted working hours. Furthermore, students must satisfy both their Host Organisation and the CADPP Academic Program Officer that they have performed all assigned tasks to a satisfactory standard. On completion of the practicum, the Host Organisation mentor will be asked to evaluate the student’s performance. The mentor will be asked to comment on criteria related to both generic skills (e.g. interpersonal, communication, professionalism, initiative) and discipline-specific knowledge. A marking rubric for this component is provided in Appendix IV.
The purpose of the Reflective Journal is to encourage critical thinking and reflection from students on their theoretical and vocational learning process while on the CADPP. It should serve as a space in which students are able to reflect on the challenges and rewards of working in a cross-cultural professional environment, and guide students’ workplace tasks week-to-week based on input from their CADPP Academic Program Officer and workplace mentor. The reflective journal should also demonstrate evidence of a students’ understanding of set course readings and ability to relate these readings to their practicum experience.
Creative Arts and Design Professional Practicum Report: 2,000 words
Students are required to complete a 2,000-word report on a contemporary issue in the Indonesian creative arts and design sector as well as to create a digital portfolio/poster/artwork displaying the student’s creative discipline within the Indonesian creative arts and design context. The aim of the report is to encourage students to think critically about contemporary creative art and design issues in Indonesia. In writing the report, students are expected to draw on a range of secondary sources (academic journal articles, research papers, books and online articles) as well as from their own experience of the Indonesian creative arts and design sector while on the CADPP program. A list of report topics for students to choose from is provided in Appendix III. Alternatively, students may request permission to work on an alternative topic, with the approval of the CADPP Academic Program Officer. An outline of this assignment can be found in Appendix III. A marking rubric for this component is provided in Appendix IV.
Award of Grade for the Unit
Both the student and the student’s home university will receive a copy of the CADPP Academic Program Officer’s student outcome evaluation report as well as an official academic transcript from the Indonesian partner university. These assessment documents will be sent electronically from the ACICIS Secretariat in Perth within six weeks of a student’s completion of the program. The home university may choose to award a numerical grade or an ungraded pass/fail on the basis of these documents and any additional home university assessment requirements for the program.
